The Television Critics Association has announced the winners of the 28th Annual TCA Awards. The event, held in the Beverly Hilton Saturday, was hosted by Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston and honored the best programming of the 2011-2012season.
Among the winners were Game of Thrones, Homeland, Switched at Birth, and Louie, which scored its first TCA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy.
Oh, sorry, I momentarily mistook TBS' new sitcom for something funny. Like Cheers — echoes of which kept ringing in my TV memory bank as I slogged my way through the back-to-back episodes of the instantly forgettable Sullivan & Son (Thursday, 10/9c), the channel's latest attempt to produce something as amusing as the popular sitcom repeats that pepper the TBS schedule.
Despite the fact that they work on the set of a (fake) bar, the cast of TBS' new comedy, Sullivan & Son know to keep things professional. But after closing time, all bets are off. Especially if Oasis' "Don't Look Back in Anger" comes on the jukebox.
"We did this DJ junket last weekend, and we all met at this restaurant. I asked the DJ to play it, and myself and the rest of the cast stood around this fountain and sang that song. [Co-star] Owen Benjamin ended up jumping into the fountain and splashing everybody," co-creator, executive producer and star Steve Byrne tells TVGuide.com. "That's when the booze was kicking in."

Drop Dead Diva
"The season is definitely heading towards a wedding with Jane and somebody."
That's right, Drop Dead Diva's former model-turned-lawyer — in another body, natch — may soon be walking down the aisle, according to creator Josh Berman, who says Jane (Brooke Elliott) will find herself in the middle of a love triangle between Grayson (Jackson Hurst) and Owen (Lex Medlin). However, the tables have turned this season, with Jane trying to move on from her former love while Grayson is coming closer to uncovering her secret: That she's his ex-girlfriend Deb. But is it too late for Grayson and Jane, especially after he shared that smooch with Stacy (April Bowlby)?

Berman dishes on what's in store for the fourth season, which he says will be the "most satisfying" for fans of the couple who cannot be. Also, with a new guardian angel coming on this season, what does this mean for Fred (Ben Feldman, who's currently recurring on Mad Men)? And, how did Kim Kardashian handle all the jokes about her past? Get the scoop:
